"newsweek" put out a special commemorative edition. an absolutely beautiful edition. you guys turned it around in 10, 15 hours. it tells the remarkable story of this man, these brothers, this family. >> heroic family in the greek sense of the word. biden pointed out last night, it goes on, there was a particu
